Entire Family is Disappointed! Wii users got shafted!!

Summary: This game is a bust! It is only a 1 person game unless you are in the toybox mode. But even then, the Wii version does not offer everything that the other systems offer. Disney played on the Skylander theme and bombed! Skylanders is a fun game that I can play with my children. The items within skylanders have symbols and colors so my younger childrem can follow it. Disney Infinity is all written out.
Buyer BEWARE! FURIOUS to discover that Wii version is only two-player in Toy Box mode. Deceptive advertising.

Summary: My kids looked forward to Infinity with MUCH anticipation, and were absolutely delighted and surprised to discover Infinity came in Wii version. I ordered it, to surprise them tonight, on Christmas night...as their last gift of the holiday. MUCH to our surprise, "two-player mode" only works in the Toy Box, as opposed to ALL the other versions. RIDICULOUS. To sell and tout the "Wii Version" is a BIG LIE. It's substandard. Period.
Don't waste your money on the Wii version..it's boring and disappointing

Summary: After watching all the pre-release trailers we were pretty excited for this to come out, and we pre-ordered it at a local store. Now I know the Wii is older and is lacking in a lot of areas, but I didn't expect this to be so incredibly limited, especially not for the price tag it came with. The in-game missions are horrible, and are more frustrating than fun for my kids (ages 7 and 9) and it's crummy that there is no multiplayer for the game levels.
Summary: So disappointed. My son saved and scraped his money for this...only to find out that the multi-player option is only available in toy box mode for Wii consoles. Shame on you Disney for not flagging it clearly on your packaging!
Summary: Worst Wii game ever. I bought this for my daughter who really wanted it and then it wouldn't work. It kept giving a disc read error or it would start and then freeze before the intro. I contacted Disney Infinity and they said their oh so special disc was double layered and some Wii systems can't read them properly because their lens is contaminated.
The Wii version lacks more than just multiplayer!!

Summary: The Wii version of this game lacks more than just the capability to play two player. It also only has a fraction of the number of collectibles that the other platforms have. When you find toys in the playsets many of them do not transfer over to the toy box like the other systems. Even more disappointing is that the playsets on the other platforms have an unlockable feature where you can play in a premade playset in the toybox as well.
Summary: Very disapointed. My son was very excited when this was released and chose to save up and buy it over the new Skylanders Swap Forces. Sadly, the game does not support multi player mode when using the playsets. Even more sadly, despite extensive research before purchase, we only discovered this after he spent even more money buying the extra character set so he and his sister could play together.
Summary: My 8-year old spent his own money on this and was so disappointed to find he can't play with his friends in the "fun part" of the game. Disney was very misleading in the advertising. If all the gaming platforms aren't the same, the advertising should spell that out. I was excited that this was a less-violent option, but didn't realize it would be so disappointing. I should have done a better job researching.
Summary: I was really excited for this game because my son and I love playing Skylanders Giants together, and this is essentially a Disney themed Skylanders rip-off mixed with a little Mine Craft level building. But I was very disappointed when I actually played it because the Wii version is awful. I've got a laundry list of complaints, so here goes.
Summary: Big let down on the Wii. You can not play 2 players unless in Toy Box mode or World Building mode. Defeats the purpose of buying other characters. My 6 year old son was looking forward to playing Monsters University world with me and sad to learn that I couldn't play this adventure game with him. It doesn't make sense. 2 player game in world building mode and battle mode but not the actual game??? Ps3 and Xbox version allows you to play 2 players in every mode.
